Google's Earth Day Home Page Looks Great Right Now
In honor of Earth Day, Google created a homepage doodle that follows a small ecosystem through days, nights and different seasons. Seriously, fish swim, ants crawl, flowers grow and bloom. It's delightful. Check it out here.
The best part might be that THE MOON WAXES AND WANES.
Remember when it looked like this?
That was in 1998, two years after it was founded. Now, we're treated regularly to wonderful creations made by professional artists. Here are other great Google homepages from years past.
